Treatment as You Transition

Outpatient Programming (OP) from Real Recovery Clinical Services is recommended for men and women who demonstrate a lessening need for intensive therapeutic support for substance abuse habits, as they transition from treatment to life commitments, such as work or school. Without compromising the progress you’ve made to date – perhaps in PHP or IOP treatment – Outpatient Programming helps young adults continue to pursue freedom as they rejoin society to a greater degree.

What are Levels of Care?

Is Outpatient Programming Right for Me?

Typically, we suggest that young adults participate in Outpatient Programming from Real Recovery Clinical Services after they complete prerequisite treatment in a Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Program (SAIOP). These recommended SAIOP benchmarks include:

  • Fulfilled minimum 6 week treatment period
  • Obtained employment, academic or volunteer engagement, with proof
  • Approved for OP from clinical staff, in collaboration with respective sober living facility

If you have invested the time and the effort necessary to satisfy the above steps, there’s a good chance that Outpatient Programming is right for you.

What Can I Expect From Outpatient Programming?

As the final step in your reclamation to society’s responsibilities, Outpatient Programming offers multiple opportunities and treatment modalities that help you pursue freedom to a greater degree. At Real Recovery Clinical Services, OP treatment groups meet twice a week – typically for 90-minute sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays – and conclude meetings by 11:00am.

Throughout the process, young adults are encouraged to note their journeys from substance use challenges toward recovery and freedom. By documenting feelings, thought and emotions in writing, clients develop a deepened appreciation for their own progress, and for the validity of the treatment process itself. We utilize proprietary workbooks based on best current clinical practices, to help participants accurately write down the victories, setbacks and takeaways that treatment offered, from PHP through the completion of Outpatient Programming.
